Or, do you just buy it when you want to go shooting? Personally, I try to buy a few hundred rounds every payday.

In general, I only buy .223 and 22lr. I usually stop by Wal-mart on my way home on Fridays and buy all of the 40 round Value Pack of .223 and a few boxes of the 550 rnd 22lr. I figure if I buy along the way I won't notice the cost so much. My 7.62x51 I buy in bulk and everything else I reload. At some point I will reload .223.

He might be a troll, but it seems like a valid question to me.

I usually go to Walmart or Academy once a week just to see if they might have something I want/need. I mean, I have a decent amount stored up, but I feel the need to buy plinking ammo every now and then.

Uh, how is that a troll question?

I buy in bulk. When I've got a few hundred left, I order more. I make a large order about once a year. But, I do check out local stores, sometimes you can find deals out there. But I always have some on hand for every firearm I own.

No I like to reload... constantly!

I don't buy that much ammo, cuz I'm broke most of the time and I don't get the opportunity to shoot more than once a month

Try to keep some in stock.....Nothing worse than heading to the range and not having the required ammo.

I buy when I have steady income. As a student, that means during vacations and summer.

Not everyone here has 87 AR15s so they might be around for the community, the sort of that stuff that results in friendly banter. I don't find this topic to be particularly -like.

"Fully loaded"? Heck no. I only ever Fully load mags when I'm suspecting a wave of s to come over the ridge...

"Fully loaded"??? WTF Is there another kind of loaded?

I would buy a few hundred rounds every payday but I'm too busy trying to think of 20 new topics to post.

Actually I buy lots of it when I can afford it. I rarely just buy a box of ammo with the exception of deer/elk rounds for my .30-06. Everything else I buy at least a few hundred everytime.

Oh wait, he'll never see that because he posts stupid questions in all forums and doesnt read any replies.

I either have enough to go shooting or I’m buying more then enough to go shooting.

It also depends on what kind of deal I can get at the SAXET Trade Show. It’s the first weekend every month in San Antonio.

What do you know it’s a new month!

I buy it when I run out, usually from Sportsmans guide... Almost exclusively Wolf, but occasionally some NATO surplus (esp .308)....

The exception is 9mm, which thanks to WalMart (WWB) & Gander Mountain (Wolf) is just not economical to ship....
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 10:44:15 PM EDT
I have less than 10,000 rounds at home.

I definitely need more ammo

There's a Gun Show later today.

I wonder how many more cases of ammo I’ll be able to buy?
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 10:57:31 PM EDT
I buy when I run out.

I have about 200rds of store-bought stuff sitting at home. The rest that I actually shoot is Wolf.

Case at a time. I start thinking about how I'm going to buy another case when I have about 100rds left.

Thanks, GS, you made me feel more normal.
Link Posted: 3/11/2006 7:02:13 PM EDT
No, I don't That's the reason I bought a Dillon 550, so, I'm not buying ammo all the time. When I run low, I run the Dillon for a few hours and the problem is solved. All I buy is powder, bullets, primers, cases. Other than .22 rimfire, I haven't bought ammo at the store for years....
Link Posted: 3/12/2006 3:14:01 AM EDT
I don't buy much ammo at all but I do keep a fair amount of components in stock and try to keep a reasonable supply of loaded ammo on hand at all times.

Depends, if I see a good deal I'll scarf up more than usual. Otherwise, I use it as I shoot it. Nobody has broken in so I haven't bothered to buy any more home defense rounds. ;)
Link Posted: 3/13/2006 7:32:43 AM EDT
Buy ammunition? Never. (Except .22 rimfire of course).
Buy loading components? Only in large batches to save $$$.
